I was surfing around today and came across this on Mothercorps website. This from the article:
America is locked in a battle between an army of climate campaigners and an army that opposes them. Can Obama Save the Planet? sets the stage for President Obama's much anticipated appearance at the UN Climate Conference in Copenhagen by questioning how his dream of leading the world in the battle against climate change resonates with Americans.
This got me to thinking....didn't Obama already save the world? I sniffed around a bit on the net and sure enough I found the exact date that Barry saved mankind. It was June 3rd 2008 when the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee released the text of this speech.
The relevant bit:
Because if we are willing to work for it, and fight for it, and believe in it, then I am absolutely certain that generations from now, we will be able to look back and tell our children that this was the moment when we began to provide care for the sick and good jobs to the jobless; this was the moment when the rise of the oceans began to slow and our planet began to heal; this was the moment when we ended a war and secured our nation and restored our image as the last, best hope on earth.
In light of this knowledge I think I'm gonna take a pass on tonights documentary for the same reason I have never watched James Cameron's Titanic. The boat sinks.
Maybe that's a bad analogy.....
